- About:Do you have lots of love to give? and time to spare ? Rubius is desperately in need of both. Can you teach this lovely dog to trust again. Rubius is a medium sized, mixed breed, approximately 11 years old. He came to Live Arico from Esperanza del Sur. They found him in a finca with many other dogs . They were all in a very poor condition. Thin , dirty, full of worms and covered in fleas. Rubius was one of the worst so Live Arico agreed to try and help him. We think he was tied up and quite possibly hit. He was very afraid of the leash and terrified of people. His current foster carer has done wonders with him. Feeding him little by little until he gained weight, a good bath and all the necessary treatments were given. Through time and patience , and giving him space, she is slowly teaching him that no-one is going to hurt him. It will take time. He loves other dogs and is very sociable with them. His passion is his walks, he would however need to stay on a lead. He would need an area which he can call his own. A place where he can remove himself to if he doesn't want to interact with people. Food usually entices him to come, as you can see in the video. He doesn't shed hair, whine, has never been aggressive to humans or other animals. Can you help Rubius in his twilight years to trust again and enjoy what time he has to be happy ?
